    Can EE's be banam's? It is a little bigger than the bantam Cochins I got.

    Yes, there are bantam EE's. They are about the size of a bantam cochin without the fluff.

    Is it a hatchery chick or is it a chick from a breeder?

    It's from a hatchery. This little one is about 4 days old.

    Might be a bantam Americauna then. It's one of the two most likely.

    Could it be a B.B. Red Old English Game? The chicks of this breed kinda look like it, but I don't know...

    Quote:Ameraucana. No I in the name. [​IMG] But no, it isn't. Wrong color legs, and that color there, if on an Ameraucana, could only be a Silver - Which are very rare, even more so in bantam form.

    It's an Easter Egger. [​IMG]

    Would a hatchery send a standard size chick in with the bantams I got as the "free rare exotic" chick?

    Yes. If your ordered bantams, they can and will send a standard sized extra chick.
